Painter Pham Minh Tri said, “War-time propaganda paintings played an important role in the national revolution. Painters showed their engagement in accomplishing political tasks. This exhibit gives young people an opportunity to see the spirit of their predecessors expressed in work, combat, national construction, and defense.”

The book “Aspiration for Peace” presents 81 works created during the war that express the Vietnamese people’s hope and longing for peace.
